China News Service, Beijing, October 20 (Reporter Liang Xiaohui) Regarding the remarks made by certain American politicians to slander China, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said at a regular press conference on the 20th that some people in the United States have a purely sour mentality.
A reporter asked questions. Reid, Chairman and President of the Export-Import Bank of the United States, published an article on the 17th, saying that for more than a decade, the Chinese Communist Party has been ruthlessly attacking the US economy by stealing intellectual property rights, compulsory technology transfer, large-scale dumping, and manipulating exchange rates. .
Recently, China has used export financing to distort fair and free market competition.
U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Clarke reposted the article on Twitter and stated that the Chinese Communist Party’s "unbelievably good" deal was not real.
What is China's comment?
Zhao Lijian responded that these remarks made by the Americans were groundless and unreasonable.
He pointed out that currently, the United States abuses the so-called "national security" excuses to wantonly suppress foreign companies, deprive foreign companies of market access, force foreign companies to sell shares and technology to domestic companies, and force third countries to cut off normal technology and products from other countries' companies. Supply, arresting senior executives of other countries’ companies in third countries, this is the wanton government intervention that has caused a large number of market distortions, and is a serious damage to WTO rules and the multilateral trading system.
In the past 40 years, China's reform and opening up have always been moving in the direction of marketization, and it has always fulfilled its responsibilities as a major trading country. The improvement of the business environment is obvious to all.
As for China's currency manipulation, it is nonsense.
Authoritative international institutions such as the International Monetary Fund all recognize that the RMB exchange rate is consistent with economic fundamentals, and there is no obvious overestimation or underestimation.
Zhao Lijian emphasized that finance is the bloodline of the economy.
China actively provides countries in need with rich and diverse financing support including export credits to meet their economic development needs.
In carrying out relevant cooperation with foreign parties, China adheres to the principle of extensive consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits, adheres to the concept of openness, greenness, and integrity, and strives to achieve high standards, people's livelihood, and sustainable goals.
The infrastructure financed by China pays great attention to connecting with international standards, protecting the ecological environment, and fulfilling social responsibilities. It has built many demonstration projects and benchmarking projects, which have played an important role in promoting global economic growth, promoting trade and investment cooperation, and improving people's livelihoods in various countries. It has been widely welcomed by the host country. The so-called "unbelievable good" argument of some people in the United States is purely a sour grape mentality.
Regarding the debt problem of some countries, Zhao Lijian emphasized that this is not only due to the economic fundamentals of the relevant countries, but also closely related to the changes in the global macroeconomic environment.
China is not the party responsible for the debt problems of some countries.
For countries with debt difficulties, China has never forced debts, has always maintained communication through bilateral channels, and has also made some debt relief arrangements based on the needs of relevant countries.
China is actively participating in the G20 "Debt Repayment Initiative for the Poorest Countries" and working with all parties to reduce the negative impact of the new crown pneumonia epidemic on the world economy and the economies of all countries.
"In short, whether the pragmatic cooperation between China and relevant countries is good, the facts are there." Zhao Lijian emphasized that for some people who distort or fabricate facts to smear China, the most important thing to do is to reflect on themselves and truly contribute to the common development of the international community. Some real things.
